7:06 am
this is a potential ordnance. an unexploded ordnance, some kind of world war ii era, and it washed up on this beach north of here. that's how strong these waves have been. this mandatory evacuation is in place for all visitors to hatteras island, that's where we are now. the center of the storm 210 miles away, and this area is expecting the tropical storm force winds, and a lot of rain. again, the concern, looking at these waves, and the concern is wind, and tides, and people are concerned. >> still talking about maria. >> maria left so much destruction across puerto rico that the governor is now warning of a humanitarian crisis. the storm has killed at least 16 people there, and look at these stunning before and after pictures showing how much of the island is still without power. 5% of puerto rico's electricity has been restored and abc's eva pilgrim spoke with the governor

7:10 am
>> reporter: yeah, george, and he went on in those tweets to emphasize that island's massive debt crisis, all the money owed to wall street, and by our count since saturday, the president has tweeted about sports 23 times. about puerto rico just three times. as you can imagine the criticism has been pouring in from celebrities to members of congress on capitol hill. the white house response to this, they say, the fema administrator has been on the ground, and the adviser to the president was on the ground. they say the federal response has been unprecedented, but look, the president is likely to face a lot more criticism if he is tweeting about this debt crisis while millions of people are still without power. >> this fight with the nfl continues into this morning. yesterday at the white house press briefing, you pressed the press secretary, sarah sanders. >> reporter: does the president believe there are very fine people who kneeled yesterday or are they all s.o.b.s?
7:11 am
>> you're trying to conflate things here. we respect the rights people have, but we have to focus. this is about the president being for respecting our country through symbols like the american flag. >> and cecilia, the president seems to be enjoying this fight. >> reporter: yeah. they are just absolutely defiant on this one. as you just mentioned, he is back up and tweeting again about this. take a look. it says, ratings for nfl football are way down, except for game starts when people tune in to see whether or not our country will be disrespected. the white house says this is not about race or the president being against something. they say this is not about him not being focused on other priorities. they say this is about president trump defending patriotism, but with those images right there, as you can see, so many people on fields and outside of fields across this country completely disagr disagree. >> a lot more division on this one. cecilia vega, thanks very much. >> he is obsessed with ratings.
7:12 am
more on the republicans' last-ditch effort to repeal the affordable care act. time is running out. gop lawmakers are facing a saturday deadline and our congressional correspondent, mary bruce, is on capitol hill with the latest on where things stand. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, robin. after seven years, republicans still can't agree on a path forward to overhaul obamacare. this morning, three republicans are now a no, which means for now, this latest health care bill isn't going anywhere. with the bill facing a growing backlash -- [ chanting ] this morning, the latest republican health care plan appears to be dead. maine senator susan collins delivering what is the fatal blow saying she cannot support the bill. >> it is clear to me that the graham/cassidy bill was not the answer. >> reporter: her objections to the bill? the deep cuts to medicaid. weakened protections to people with pre-existing conditions, and the fear that premiums for
7:13 am
many would likely rise. she joins rand paul and john mccain, but they are vowing to fight on. >> we're going to press on, and it's okay to vote. it's okay to fall short if you do for an idea you believe in. >> reporter: opposition to the bill boiled over on monday as protesters took to the halls of the capitol. >> if you want a hearing, you better shut up. >> reporter: protesters hauled off and arrested. many in wheelchairs. this woman came from wyoming for her voice to be heard. her daughter is in a wheelchair. her daughter-in-law, battling her fourth round of cancer. what do you want lawmakers to hear from you and everyone else in this line? >> be human. care. care about insurance for everyone. not just yourselves or your relatives. care about everyone, even the poor. they need it. >> reporter: so what comes next here? well, republicans will now likely have to work with democrats on a bipartisan
7:14 am
solution to repair obamacare, but for now, their signature promise to repeal and replace it is out of reach, george. >> they have to decide whether to pull the plug around noon today. thanks very much. president trump facing a test at the polls and the president is pushing for luther strange. he is facing a strong republican primary challenger, and that person is backed by steve ban. abc's chief national correspondent, tom llamas, is in mobile. >> for whatever reason, god has put me in this election -- >> reporter: overnight, former alabama chief justice, roy moore, making it clear, he is going to defend the second amendment. >> i believe in the seconded amendment. >> reporter: and this morning, political trouble could be coming for president trump on horseback. moore will ride to the polls to vote for himself in the senate republican primary.
7:15 am
>> i ron the last time i rode a horse. >> reporter: he is facing luther strange who is backed by president trump. >> they want to see what the people of alabama do tomorrow. >> reporter: moore has won over some of the trump's most prominent supporters, including the president's former chief strategi strategist, steve bannon, who is breaking with the president in this race. >> we did not come here to defy donald trump. we came to praise and honor him. >> reporter: who should they vote for? >> i came down here for judge roy moore. >> reporter: but the president is sticking by luther strange. >> i say, senator, i need your help. i said, i got to get your vote on health care. he says, you have got it. >> reporter: senator strange was appointed to jeff sessions' seat when sessions was confirmed as attorney general. he is the tallest person to serve in the senate. >> i said, that is the tallest
7:16 am
person i have ever seen. that's why i call him big luther. >> reporter: but he is facing a big challenge in moore who is well known by conservatives for refusing a federal order to remove a ten commandments monument from a judicial building, and later suspended as a judge for ignoring the supreme court ruling on legalizing same-sex marriage. strange who campaigned with mike pence overnight is banking on that white house support to deliver victory. >> the vice president and the president of the united states, came here on my behalf, and it means more than i can possibly say. >> reporter: now strange and his supporters which include a superpac linked to senator mitch mcconnell have poured millions into attack ads in this race, but local reports show moore on top, and president trump tweeted this morning saying, luther strange has been shooting up in the alabama poll since my endorsement. finish the job. vote today for big luther.
7:17 am
robin? >> we'll see what happens. all right, tom. this morning, tensions are escalating with north korea. they say they have the right to shoot down american war planes. martha raddatz is here with the latest, and this comes in response to our u.s. bombers flying into north korea? >> absolutely. they flew further north. they were off the coast about 200 miles than they have in decades. this was a show of force. they could not be shot down 200 miles off that coast. they are away from north korean artillery and rockets, but the north koreans put out a prop gran da video shooting down our bombers, but jim mattis says he hopes to solve this diplomatically. >> are we close to a conflict here? >> they are trying to avoid that, but that could always happen, robin. >> thank you. >> thank you, martha. before we go to ginger with the record heat, we'll switch

8:15 am
funded by pacira, called united states for nondependence, and opioid overprescribing, finds seven common surgeries are often being prescribed far more pills than they need. >> what's startling and really bothersome in the study is the number of patients that are on opioids well after the surgery has been completed. >> reporter: the study concluding 3 million patients continued taking them three months or longer after surgery, and christina is not alone. 11.7 billion opioid painkillers like oxy cotton and vicodin were prescribed in 2016. if you laid them down end to end, they would crisscross the country 50 times. >> more people die from opioid prescription overdose than from heroin per year. >> that is startling. dr. jennifer ashton is here. you can be in pain after
8:16 am
post-surgery. are there any other options though? do people -- should we ask questions as a patient? >> 100% because an informed patient is the most ideal patient, but it's a catch 22 here because pain delays surgical healing and recovery so there's the balance about giving other options. if you are facing surgery, you want to ask a couple of questions. could you make inflammatories or use ice therapy. sometimes that's an option. you should always request the lowest dose if you need an opioid narcotic for the shortest period of time. it's basic pharmacology, and our awareness needs to be ratcheted up and we're talking about this class of medication. >> this number will startle people. according to the cdc, 33,000 died from overdoses in 2015. many what do we know about the addiction? >> there is intense research now going on, robin in the area of research medicine. it's the reward system in the
8:17 am
brain is hijacked and we don't know why people are prone to become addicted. we know it happens, and you have to be aware of the warning signs. if you are taking more opioid narcotics and you can't cut down, that's a sign. if you are constantly nauseated or vomiting, itchy, sedated, or have pinpoint pupils, these are signs you need to seek help. this can be life-threatening and we see that every single day. >> as a doctor, why are women prescribed it more than men? >> again, another sex gender issue. we don't know that. women suffer more chronic pain than men, and they seem to be given, you know, higher doses for longer periods of time. they are often on other medications that have been implicated in these overdose deaths, and again, pregnancy. this is a massive problem in my specialty. we're seeing a lot of pregnant women already come in dependent on narcotics and infants born

8:53 am
re-write, and people want us to say we batted back and forth, but he didn't. >> you didn't? >> i would have an idea, and he would say no. >> he is the youngest of my wife and i's three children, and he is the bossiest, so basically if he says do this, then i pretty much did that, you know. but it worked out pretty well. we did re-write each other, and the result was it was almost like a third voice to the book. i want people to know who wrote what. sometimes we can't remember. >> i get to play oprah now. >> i get to play oprah now. you're all going home with a gus! nice job! gus! heyyy! looking good!
